25 Jun 2008: McRae Cousins Farewell
25 June 2008
Descendants of the Hokonui McRaes gathered recently on the original home farm at Dunsdale for a fond farewell. The farm has been sold. The cousins knew this reunion would probably be the last time they could all be together on the family farm.

The cousin's parents were the children of John McRae (known as Billy) and his wife Isabella Robertson. They had 14 children between 1896 and 1914. Billy was known for distilling illicit whisky in bush bordering his farm at Hokonui (see article South Island Moonshine).

Billy lead the 1st gathering of the Celtic Society in 1895 in Hokonui.
